Lang'ata aspirant Felix Odiwuor alias Jalang'o has revealed plans to spend over Ksh40m for his campaigns.
Speaking to Citizen TV today, Jalas as known by many said Kenyans want someone who will help them immediately.
He said that the funds will go towards his campaign plans and logistics.
Jalang'o secured the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party ticket to vie for the MP seat a week ago after nominations.
"It is not about handouts or anything like that, but for a well-oiled campaign, it would easily cost about Ksh30 million to Ksh 40 million. With this, you will be able to move into every single place and articulate your issues."
Jalang'o said the 2022 elections will be a bit expensive and will require politicians to dig deeper into their pockets because they come at a time when the country is coming from a Covid-19 pandemic.
He said while most politicians want to go to the ground and give their manifestos and promises to the people, the situation forces you to go beyond that and instead end up giving food and help to people.
Asked how he will manage to get funds for his campaigns, Jalang'o said his friends contributed a good amount of money during a fundraiser that took place last year.
"I had my fundraiser in December 2021 in which a few friends put in a good amount of money for me to start my campaigns; and from time to time I have also had support from my constituency in Langa’ta."
